Yorn Shorn: With His First Haircut in Years, Rocker Pete Yorn Surprises in “Killers of the Flower Moon,” Now Eyes “Yellowstone” Spin Off


EXCLUSIVE Rocker Pete Yorn is as well known for his long locks as he is for his catchy songs. The latter include his hit, “Life on a Chain” in 2001, and a long list of songs recognizable to a loyal following.

But early screening audiences who’ve seen Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” are very impressed with an actor they think they know, only he looks different. For “Killers,” I’m told, Pete let the hairstyling department give him his first hair cut in what might be decades.

In other words Yorn is Shorn.

Yorn’s distinctive good looks had everyone at Wednesday night’s premiere of “Killers” asking who that guy is? Yorn unfortunately plays a baddish kind of guy in Oklahoma in the 1920s who works for the characters played by Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio.

But his turn in the film has already caught the eye of Taylor Sheridan. Sources say Yorn is high on Sheridan’s list for a role in the “Yellowstone” spin off with Matthew McConaughey which will follow the end of the Kevin Costner era. Will he get to grow his hair back? If it’s a period piece, his character may have trouble finding conditioner!
